Saving large documents in OO formats takes too long. Even saving of 100 KB document takes a few seconds. The problem is, I believe, that OO's format is actually zipped XML directory. So, to avoid wasting time I prefer to save large documents in formats different from OO format, like MS Office formats xls and doc, or StarOffice 5 formats. I checked the preview of OO 2 (1.9.65) and the newer OO 2 formats. The time to save a document is not any better there. I doubt that the current OO XML format is useful for documents larger than a couple of pages. I am not XML expert but probably a better solution would be the unzipped XML format like it is done in other open sources word processors

And your purpose in telling us this is? Possibly there should be an option to avoid compressing the files.. however, I wouldn't waste any serious development time on it.

Since you already voiced your opinion to the forum here:

Maybe you should tell the developers about your ideas here:

Personally I can wait the extra few seconds. And thus avoid saving a file in a format that may need to be reconverted. Many of my OOo Impress files are half the size of M$ files.

XML is an industry standard and the files can easily be read with a text editor. The standardized structure assures that convertors for whatever applications we use in the future will be availble...and FREE. If you prefer the "secret" (proprietary) formats pandered by M$, they are much easier to use when you quit trying to make OOo work like Office and simply use that software.

If this is a troll, it doesn't belong here....and I bit Embarassed

Try installing 1.9.69 or newer!

I think that saving and loading was improved dramatically with 1.9.67...

Suddenly performance (saving and loading) was improved like I was in a dream; do you experience the same?

No, mine was actually running slower than 1.1.x builds.

I installed 1.9.69. It's even slower than 1.1. I have W2K machine in my office. Probably on Linux it's different. I did qucik test. In my test savig in XLS and HTML formats takes about 1.5 sec, SXC and ODS take about 5 sec.Saving in DOC and HTML formats takes 1 sec, SXW and ODT take 7 - 9 sec.

Weird! It is 10 times faster on my ooold W2K machine and on my fast laptop with XP.

On a pc at work, it is also much much fast (XP).

Both ODT and SXW files were saved this fast. I'm happy now! Smile
